BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION TRADES SCHOOLS AND PATHWAYS
The great Trades programs we do have in the Contra Costa County school districts must be enhanced and expanded. We need to develop more trade schools in our districts. The knowledge and skills are acquired in a sequential, standards-based pathway program that integrates hands-on, project-based, and work-based instruction. Standards included in the Building and Construction Trades sector are designed to prepare students for technical training, post-secondary education, and entry to a career.
